Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Re: D&D4E [European evening / USA afternoon ] Living on the Edge
The purpose of the game is play during a time that european people are not asleep.
Note: I have retired from DM'ing this game. Technicality now runs the show.
This will be a Maptool game. I'm using version 1.3.b31 currently (A development version with improved use and more functions then the 1.2 release). Each player is encouraged to make a sheet on mythweavers (don't forget to flag it public), to watch the Maptool player tutorial, to write a single paragraph background for the IC thread which will be up later, and to make a token for Maptool representing them.
The rules are:
22 point buy, 100gp starting gold (keep left overs), PHB races allowed, MM player races after DM consultation.
Starting level 1, any PHB class.
No evil/chaotic evil unless you get DM fiat. (Which is unlikely at the start, a large group with a Paladin makes an evil player bad news)
Money doesn't weigh anything, unless in extremely clear circumstances (dragons lying in 100.000gp gold coins, robbing banks, smelting copper coins). (It's one of the stupider aspects of D&D in my opinion, and I don't want to be bogged down by having to trade platinum coins for astral diamonds, copper for silver etcet).
You can get a "background" bonus to knowledge checks (Elves will know more about elves then dwarves, even if the dwarf has a higher rank in Knowledge History)
